VLC media player stopped working.

My Android version is 7.0. I have been using VLC media player for the longest time. Now it simply will not work. I get a message for one second saying something like "The file at xxx cannot be played." Is there a known issue? Is there a fix? Thanks.
have you tried to wipe cache for the player? or even wipe cache and data and then uninstall and re-install the app?

Much as I hate to say it about the faithful Samsung Galaxy S2... the old girl has seen better days.

  • Almost 10 years old
  • 1GB RAM
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • Exynos 4210 at 1.2GHz dual core

I very much doubt that VLC even supports the Samsung Galaxy S2 nowadays. try contacting the VLC developers and see if this is the case... videolan.android@gmail.com

If you do decide to retire your S2... treat her with respect. ;)
